Can you put it in front of the y-pipe going into the turbo? Do a 90* off to the side to keep it out of the rad.

I was trying to avoid a huge mess of tubing. its very tight at the merge. If the pic i posted turned out to be a terrible idea ill make it happen at the merge

I would say good location if your going to run one each side. If not then get it in the merge.

It would work great if you did one on each side like that. Do you not have room to put it on the engine side of the merge?

Its super tight, i would have to do some wierd piping and go straight down from the merge.

Which isnt that big of a deal just a ton more work is all.

Not knocking you, i'm just saying that it's a 72 chevelle, there is alot of space under that hood. My setup is a 67 chevelle and I have alot less space. When you start the build you need to invision these things, you can't get to where you are then start to consider that you need a wastegate.

I started with a 38mm WG that dumped back to the exhaust then went to a 60mm dumped to atmosphere. I'm using the same headers you are and a S480 turbo. I'll post a link to pictures, maybe you'll see something that helps.

Yes, i completely understand that. I have been told by a few that this might work and a bunch of others that say it wont work.

I would rather not make some wild ass tubing at the merge if i can help it. Honestly if its just a bad idea to run the gate like i have it in the picture then i'll prob just get rid of it and buy 2 smaller gates and mount them at the end of each header.

Only right way... Put another gate on the other bank, or put it on the merge... Do it right and buy another gate...

Will the way you have it drawn work??? No.

Buy another gate!

I thought you didn't want a mess of tubing??? That would look like quite a jumbled mess!!!

Is that mild, or stainless??? After you get the turbo and downpipe bolted to it, and get the finished product all together, I think it will look fine.. :party
